UND football player cited for disorderly conduct

A UND football player was arrested in downtown Grand Forks and charged with disorderly conduct early Saturday morning.

Sophomore tight end Derek Paulson was arrested on suspicion of urinating in public, minor in consumption of alcohol and refusing to halt.

According to Sgt. Rory Suby of the Grand Forks Police Department, at about 12:30 a.m., a patrol officer saw Paulson urinating on the north side of a building on South Third Street downtown. The officer got out of the car, and Paulson ran and attempted to jump a nearby fence before police were able to place him in handcuffs, Suby said.

Paulson, of Lodi, Wis., appeared in seven games in 2017 as a reserve tight end and special teams contributor.
